Kathy! you're killing me in a great way!

First and foremost, Thank you Kathy for bringing to the forefront a very real, very true issue many people deal with today. I wish that more people would openly write about this subject so that more people could take and educate themselves and be more aware.

Now, my review...
How the heck do I write a review for a book that is pure fabulousness? The crossover from Shelter Me into Rescue Me... So well done it felt like I didn't have a wait for this book! I l

Review of Rescue Me (Shelter Me #2) by Kathy Coopmans

Review done for Hooked on Books

4 ½ out of 5 stars

Kathy Coopmans has blown me away with this book. I really enjoyed book 1; “Shelter Me”, but Rescue Me has totally surpassed all expectations for a follow up.

I truly loved Erin McIntyre. She is a survivor and beautiful person. She used all her strength to save her daughter and herself from an abusive husband. When Shayne, her best friend, asked her to move to be closer to her, Erin takes a chance

This is book two in the Shelter Me Series and can be read as a stand alone.
This is Adam's and Erin's story.
I gave this book 5 stars.

Erin has been through so much and the violence in her life that she has endured has left her closed off and afraid to let anyone in. Adam feels such an attraction and connection with Erin and wants to stop at nothing to prove to her that not everyone is the same. He will have his work cut out for him, because even if Erin does want to give him a chance her mi

I Freaking Love Kathy Coopmans

Rescue Me is the second Book in the Shelter Me series and it is PERFECT!
This is Adam and Erin's story whom you are introduced to in "Shelter Me"

Erin suffered a marriage full of physical and mental abuse. Now that she has escaped the hands of her now ex husband she makes a vow to never love or trust again.
Trying to make a fresh start for her and daughter she finds herself packing up leaving Texas and moving to Michigan where her best friend Shayne

Firstly I salute this author for raising the issue of domestic abuse and despite this brilliant book being fiction as a d.v worker myself unfortunately Domestic abuse is very much real in the lives of many women and an increasing issue.

Erin is a domestic abuse survivor and struggles to love and trust again until she has the healing soothing words and love from her best friends cousin Adam.

let me tell you about Adam this BBF is amazing.

Theres lots of swooning,lust & love,family bonds,danger,dr

Kathy Coopmans writes like a seasoned veteran. She creates characters and a world in which you're drawn in immediately and surrounded with--like a blanket on a cold night.

No one can write Alpha hero's quite like Ms. Coopmans. This one.. well Adam.. he's my favorite (and since I fell in love with her first book that's hard for me).

He's a sweet Alpha that falls head over heels for his woman and has a dirty mouth to make any woman (including me) melt!

This book deals with a very serious issue and

This book was really good, and I liked it better than the first one. Adam is such a wonderful man and it would almost be impossible not to fall in love with him. Erin is such a strong survivor but she is still dealing with a lot of insecurtities that abuse victims deal with on a daily basis. I cannot wait to read Shelby's and Antonio's story next.

Actual Rating: 4.5 Stars

Rescue Me by Kathy Coopmans was a fantastic book that I was so looking forward to reading. After reading her first book, Shelter Me, I was more than eager to get back with the characters that captured me in, and to spend more time in the awesome book world that she created.

This book tells the story of Adam and Erin. We met both of them in Shelter Me, but Rescue Me is truly their story. It’s a story of overcoming the pain of the past, recognizing the strength in yourself,

This is an excellent story line and well thought out. I do love the characters and it held my interest. More in depth and easier to connect with than the first book. The writing, well the words, were too formal at times for me and a little too much cliches but all in all it was a good read.

WOW Kathy is really pulling out all the stops and she is only 2 books into her writing career !! As much as I loved Luke and all the things going on in Shelter Me , dare I say Rescue Me is even better !! Adam is so swoonworthy and alpha HOT OMG melting panties everywhere !! There is also a story of domestic violence here so be warned some scenes may not be for everyone. It is heartbreaking yet heartwarming all in one.

After Kathy announced that we would get Erin and Adams story, I absolutely could not wait. Days turned into weeks, and weeks turned into months and I anticipated the release of Rescue Me. And it's finally here, and I devoured their story in one sitting!

This is the second book in the Rescue Me series. Shayne’s friend Erin and her daughter moved to be Michigan to be closer to Shayne. After all there was nothing keeping them in Texas. Erin is damaged and has no self-worth. Her ex-husband was abusive, verbally and physically. Shayne’s cousin Adam came down to Texas to help them pack and move. Erin is attracted to Adam but what would he want with someone like her or at least that’s what Erin thinks and feels. Today’s is Shayne’s wedding she should ...more

My Golden Reads Review of Rescue Me

I was given an arc for an honest review.

This is the second book by Kathy and it starts where Shelter Me left off. Rescue Me is the story of Erin and Adam. All the characters from Shelter Me are brought back and a few new ones make an appearance.

I was scared, and I’m a mom, and when someone threatens to kill you if you ever try and call the cops, or worse yet, try and leave them, you believe them. You slip into a world of darkness, a world of hate; a world where

Rescue Me by Kathy Coopmans is Book 2 in the Shelter Me series, Erin and Adams story. This book is not for the faint of heart. Its gritty, raw, detailed and heartwrenching. This is a story of a woman broken and shattered by the hands of an abusive ex-husband she manages to escape with the help of her best friend Shayne. It is a love story, but this road to happiness is a rough one, really rough. Kathy Coopmans had me crying big ugly tears and praying for some joy for Erin. This poor woman, if sh ...more
From that prologue I was hooked! My heart absolutely broke for Erin! With everything she has to go thru in this book she truly is a survivor. Domestic violence is something no one should ever have to go thru and while I personally have never dealt with it, my sister did and I wish I could say she got her happily ever after at the end like Erin does but sadly I can't. My sister lost her life by the hands of her husband on Mother's Day 2013 at just 23 years old leaving behind 4 beautiful babies :( ...more

I was so confused with how I felt about this book when I finished it. There were parts I really liked and other times I wanted to throw my Kindle against a wall! For me overall this was a good book. And, a quick read.

Erin's past few years haven't been to good. When her best friend Shayne goes back home and falls back in love she begs Erin to move there to. Erin decided that her & her daughter need a fresh start. A chance to be happy. Erin moves in with Shayne's cousin

I had been anxiously awaiting the release of Rescue Me since the end of the first book in the series. Kathy Coopmans did not disappoint at all in her follow up to her stellar debut, Shelter Me. I was invested in Erin & Adam's story from page one and read it through in one setting. Even when it was over, I was yearning for more of their story.

Rescue Me was sweet but intense read. This book was a bit different from Shelter Me because it had a slightly darker back story.

We first met Erin and Shane in book 1 to this series. I really liked Adam in the first book, so I was excited that he was getting his own story. Erin was Shayne's BFF and Adam was Shayne's cousin and best friend. You got the sense that these two had a connection but you never really knew what was going on between them.

This book talks about domestic violence so if you are not comfortable with the subject please do not read, but if you want to meet a strong woman than you need to meet Erin.

Rescue Me is a heartbreaking and uplifting book all in one. It makes you cry—and I mean ugly cry—then has you awwwing moments later. It’s a story of survival at it’s best, about watching an abused woman struggle through the insecurities within herself after being beat down for so long and wondering if she’s worthy of being loved again.
Watching Erin break down walls and see if she’s capable of allowing another person into the mess of her emotions is an emotional journey, not only for the characte

So I won't deny that I love the trope "abused woman finds her way then finds love again"
It shows me that with all the experiences I've had in life that there is hope and happiness at the end of tunnel even in the darkest of circumstances.

That is not what I got.

Instead I got

There was no chance to see any real relationship growth because it honestly read like insta love. It was Bam! I want your body and we live together! Bam! I love you! Bam! Let's get married and have lots of pretty babie
